Some interesting news of note:

Let’s hope the forthcoming EPL Talk message boards will be devoid of this type of abuse and language.
The Soccer Mad In America blog includes a clip of a forthcoming documentary about the German World Cup team. Although it’s in German, the trailer gives a fascinating insight into the German World Cup team.
